AS Monaco sporting director Vadim Vasilyev has warned Chelsea and Real Madrid off star striker Radamel Falcao.

Falcao only penned a five-year deal with the Ligue 1 outfit in the summer, but has been repeatedly linked with a move away in January to either Chelsea or Real Madrid.

"He's very happy here," Vasilyev told RMC.

"He feels really good in Monaco. Actually, we dined with him, his wife and the president a few days ago and he loves the club, the city. So there's no problem and he won't leave in January. That's certain."
